I really don't like things like this, but I guess he feels to get so more name recognition.

"Sarah Palin is the dumbest thing. But I made a fortune off of her. [He made a porn film called Nailin' Palin, based on her]... She did a disservice to every woman in America. She knew from the first month of pregnancy that kid was going to be Down's Syndrome. It's brain dead. A virtual vegetable. She carries it to all these different political events against abortion, she did it just because she didn't want to say she'd had an abortion. How long is it going to live? Another 12, 15 years? Doesn't even know it's in this world. So what kind of compassionate conservative is she? I don't think anybody will want her near the White House."
I didn't think that he would know how to swim. Besides, why would have a good time with kids who don't think like him?Little man was crying and mom was trying to hold it together and not upset him further. It took every ounce of self-control she had not to smack that women silly. He asked his mommy why people didn't like him. It broke her heart to see him so upset. They spent the afternoon doing some fun activities on their own and had hot fudge sundaes. He soon forget about the insult. But mom did not. Mom also has been told to her face that she "no right" to bring that dummy into the world. She has been asked why didn't she have an abortion when she found out he was "ill". He isn't ill. He is perfectly healthy, mom tells them. His brain just works differently.
No. I’m in, like, dating Babylon. Like, I go on dates with men and, literally, like Sarah Palin will come up in like the first 20 minutes, and that doesn’t put me in the mood. Like, talking about Sarah Palin. And they just want to know gossip, and I’m just kind of taking a little hiatus from dating right now, because I just don’t want to talk about Sarah Palin.
"We've decided not to share Storm's sex for now -- a tribute to freedom and choice in place of limitation, a stand up to what the world could become in Storm's lifetime (a more progressive place?...)."
The couple’s 5-year-old son, Jazz, “keeps his hair long, preferring to wear it in three braids,” his favorite color is pink and “he loves to paint his fingernails and wears a sparkly pink stud in one ear.” What’s more, the reporter describes a booklet Jazz wrote titled, “Gender Explorer.” Inside, it reads: “Help girls do boy things. Help boys do girl things. Let your kid be whoever they are!”
Whether we like it or not, Herman Cain is expanding the definition of what it means to be black in America. He reminds us that the divides in America are driven more by wealth and class than by race or gender. America is more capitalist than it is racist, sexist or homophobic, so it is no surprise that even Sarah Palin went out of her way to mention how much she loves Herman Cain.
With popular Republicans such as former governor Mike Huckabee, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and Donald Trump bowing out of the election, Cain has the opportunity to take his appeal to the next level. It will be interesting to see if those on the far right truly have the stomach to treat Cain with decency, rather than throwing him under the bus as they did Michael Steele.OK, first I never looked at Donald Trump as a republican let alone a conservative. His only real appeal was to the birthers. I have met Michael Steele on quite a few occasions. He is a very nice man who was totally wrong for the job of RNC Chairman. Steele likes the spot light. It is part of his personality. There is nothing wrong with that in the proper context, but the chairman of the party is more of a behind the scenes type of position. Not one of Steele's strong points. Steele mismanaged the party's money among some other controversies during his tenure. Remember the stripper bar tab? Not something that represents the party in positive light. While he didn't come out and say it, I am sure that Watkins believes that Steele was nothing more than the token black chosen after the election of the first black president. If that were the case, it wouldn't have taken as many ballots for Steele to win the chairmanship.
We all know that if Cain deviates even a bit from traditional Republican platforms (as did Colin Powell), he will be the target of right wing lynch mobs only reserved for black Republicans who don't know their place. He won't have the same latitude for reconsideration afforded other leading Republicans, such as Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. Some conservatives are open to the idea of a black man giving orders, as long as he tells them to do what they were already planning to do in the first place.
In case you're wondering, there is no way on earth that I would support Herman Cain for president. But my opposition to Cain has nothing to do with me thinking that he's somehow betrayed his race. Instead, it is my advocacy for progressive thought, racial equality and protection of the poor that leads me to believe that Cain is not the right man to run the country.What I find so sad about this is that he doesn't see that what he is saying is about race. What he is missing is the fact that the country is running out of money. So unless we start spending our money more wisely and more effectively we will be unable to help the poor. Conservatism is not about leaving the disadvantaged to fend for themselves, it is about enabling them to get to the point that they no longer need government assistance and are able to help themselves. Herman Cain would like to stop the alarming high rates of abortion in the black community. Abortion kills more blacks than gangs. Cain supports school choice in the poor performing schools, many of which are in minority communities. Giving these children a better education will greatly improve the chances of lifting themselves out of poverty. Cain's view of homosexuality is the norm in the black community. It isn't that Cain's values are different than many within the black community, it is that the black community doesn't vote it's values.
Unfortunately, quite a few members of the black community could care less about the poor and are so conservative that they'd rather see the nation become a dictatorship. This is one reason that Cain's candidacy, if couched in the right terminology, could threaten to crack the long-term love affair between African-Americans and the Democratic Party.
Not every black person is poor and liberal, and many of them sit down with their own version of Herman Cain for Sunday dinner every single week. While I humbly (and perhaps even myopically) stick to the words "probably not," the truth is that Herman Cain has the chance to reshape America.
“Remarks of this nature are unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” MSNBC said in a statement.In the most surprising turn of events this statement came from The Women's Media Center:
MSNBC said Schultz will address the remarks on his show Wednesday night, and begin his leave immediately afterward. He will return on June 6th.
“MSNBC management met with Ed Schultz this afternoon and accepted his offer to take one week of unpaid leave for the remarks he made yesterday on his radio program,” MSNBC said.
“While conservative bloggers and watchdog organizations are highlighting Schultz’s remark, the Women’s Media Center also calls on MSNBC to suspend Schultz for his comments, since they not only attack Ingraham, but all women, Ms. Ingraham is no friend to the Women’s Media Center, but a sexist and misogynist attack based on her gender and not her political views or comments is harmful to women in media, politics, and beyond.”
“Re. the crude comments made about me by Ed Schultz on his radio program: First, I was surprised to learn that Ed Schultz actually hosted a radio show. Is it only available online?”
“Second, I have to get back to recording the audio edition of my new book “Of Thee I Zing.” Now I’m tempted to insert one additional zing—about men who preach civility but practice misogyny.”
1) If he is such a womanizer and violent guy with women, why didn't he ever get charged until now? If he has a long history of sexual abuse, how can it have remained no more than gossip this long? France is a nation of vicious political rivalries. Why didn't his opponents get him years ago?Oh, and he goes on:
2.) In life, events tend to follow patterns. People who commit crimes tend to be criminals, for example. Can anyone tell me any economists who have been convicted of violent sex crimes? Can anyone tell me of any heads of nonprofit international economic entities who have ever been charged and convicted of violent sexual crimes? Is it likely that just by chance this hotel maid found the only one in this category? Maybe Mr. Strauss-Kahn is guilty but if so, he is one of a kind, and criminals are not usually one of a kind.
3.) The prosecutors say that Mr. Strauss-Kahn "forced" the complainant to have oral and other sex with him. How? Did he have a gun? Did he have a knife? He's a short fat old man. They were in a hotel with people passing by the room constantly, if it's anything like the many hotels I am in. How did he intimidate her in that situation? And if he was so intimidating, why did she immediately feel un-intimidated enough to alert the authorities as to her story?Since no one knows who this women is, she could be someone like me, who is 100lbs. It doesn't take much for a man to be stronger than me. Then he decides to talk about the alleged victim:
6.) People accuse other people of crimes all of the time. What do we know about the complainant besides that she is a hotel maid? I love and admire hotel maids. They have incredibly hard jobs and they do them uncomplainingly. I am sure she is a fine woman. On the other hand, I have had hotel maids that were complete lunatics, stealing airline tickets from me, stealing money from me, throwing away important papers, stealing medications from me. How do we know that this woman's word was good enough to put Mr. Strauss-Kahn straight into a horrific jail? Putting a man in Riker's is serious business. Maybe more than a few minutes of investigation is merited before it's done.This is a very wealthy man who if he makes his way back to France will never see the inside of the courtroom and this possibly "lunatic" maid will never have her day in court. Did you forget about Roman Polanski, Mr. Stein? Just because he was denied bail doesn't mean he is not presumed innocent. Oh, I think it is time that you get that medication that was stolen from you refilled. It sounds like you need it.
This is why the GOP needs to rethink its debate schedule and why the RNC should take over the operation of the debates and exile Cain, Johnson and Paul as well as every other candidate without a prayer of winning. (Santorum is a long shot, but he has a realistic though small chance of winning the nomination, while the others do not.) The seriousness of the fiscal crisis requires the GOP and its candidates to act seriously, and allowing marginal candidates to eat up time and distract from the enormous problems facing the country is not serious.I really like Hugh Hewitt and I generally agree with most of what he says. This I absolutely don’t agree with. It is not up to the RNC who gets into the race. It is up to the individual following the laws and the rules to enter. If a candidate files the paperwork and pays the fee, he has every right to enter the race. We should never be shutting down speech. We need to encourage as much free speech as possible. We also need to give the voters as many different points of view so we are sure we are picking the right person. On top of the fact that he putting Gingrich in a higher level than Santorum or Cain is simply laughable. Cain was the winner of the debate by most standards.
Gingrich and Romney sensed this and wisely avoided this event. Governor Pawlenty who needs to build name ID and a donor base probably has no choice but to attend them all.
"With allies like that, who needs the left?"Paul Ryan on Newt Gingrich's comments on his budget plan. Just in case you didn't hear it:
"I don't think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering," Gingrich said of Ryan's plan on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "I don't think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate."
Your actions today can make a difference for many of the women in your life — whether it is for a friend, your sister, your wife, your daughter, or yourself — all I ask is that you act.
I guess not even Mother's Day is off limits to push the abortion agenda. How is this woman still allowed to accept communion at her Church? My understand is that she does attend Mass at her local Catholic church.
My strategists tell me that we are $53,241 short of our new goal of $200,000 for our Rapid Response campaign to hold House Republicans accountable for their divisive and radical agenda.
Contribute $3 or more right now so we can get hard-hitting Rapid Response ads up holding Republican extremists in Congress accountable for their radical assault on women’s health care and reproductive freedom.
House Republicans should be working to help put Americans back to work, not waging an outrageous war against millions of women and their private health decisions.
Let us never allow the health of American women to come under attack. Let us stand together to expand care, not limit it.
